The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) announces ARCTIC ALERTS 2016, a media roundtable in which Arctic researchers will outline the unprecedented changes taking place in the Arctic environment and the local and global consequences. This year continues the recent trend of remarkable anomalies in the Arctic, and the presentations and discussion will focus on their connections to global changes.
The roundtable will take place at The National Press Club in Washington, DC on 13 July 2016 from 1-3 pm (EDT). Five brief presentations by scientific experts will be followed by questions from—and discussions with—journalists. In addition to the presenters, other scientific experts will be available to address journalists’ questions.
This roundtable is designed as a discussion between the researchers and journalists, so we won't be taking questions from the audience. Nonetheless, others are welcome to attend in listen-only mode. Please notify Brendan Kelly (bpkelly [at] alaska.edu) if you plan to attend so that we can accommodate everyone.
